There’s nothing that says “Happy Holidays” quite like Kevin Bacon. On Oct. 25, Disney released the trailer for the brand-new “The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special,” which sees the return of many of our MCU faves. It’s Marvel’s second “Special Presentation” after October’s Halloween special “Werewolf by Night.” Director James Gunn has promised that the special, which looks to be full of festive hijinks, will lead right into the plot of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which is scheduled to be released in May 2023. The special is the first appearance by the Guardians in the MCU since July’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” and the first time they headline their own title since “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was released way back in 2017.

In the trailer, the Guardians are worried that Peter Quill, aka Starlord (Chris Pratt), is still really depressed because Gamora (Zeo Saladaña) is gone. To cheer him up, Drax (Dave Bautista) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) head to Planet Earth to get him the absolutely perfect Christmas present. They land on Starlord’s hero: Kevin Bacon. Bacon appears as himself, running from the two Guardians. Gunn wrote on Twitter, “And, yes, when I said the #GotGHolidaySpecial was going to debut my new favorite MCU character, that favorite character is Kevin Bacon.” He added in another tweet about the plot, “It’s about as Christmasy as you can get.”
